Bridlington Hospital Funds is preparing to launch its first flagship fund-raising day which is hoped will brighten up Mondays.

Residents are being invited to tackle the Monday blues by getting involved in the fund-raiser which will be launched on May 20.

It is hoped that staff, local business, schools and supporters will get involved by doing something fun on a Monday while raising money for hospital funds.

Hospital fund raiser Maya Richardson said: “We are trying to bring some fun to a Monday, whether its by dressing up in funny blue clothes, holding a cake sale with blue iced cakes or simply taking part in the Monday Blues Sweepstake.

“The £2 entry into the sweepstake could not only net the winner £30 but it could also buy a magazine for a patient to read whilst waiting to go to theatre, making them a little more relaxed.”

To get your easy sweepstake and fund-raising pack today, email charity.fundraising@york.nhs.uk or call 01723 236210.
